I think you're on the right track Telman, there have been several threads here regarding that exact issue, and if I recall correctly, the stabilizer has a dramatic effect on the handling. Search the site for "swingarm" threads etc. I know that far more will come up than I could tell you.
Most reports I recall were good, and in addition, a few of the posters installed the swingarm stabilizer, as well as the fork brace.
this solved the "wag the dog" effect, as well as the "wag the tail" effect.
The best of both worlds at the end of the day...IMHO...
Good luck with the search......g
